Theone person who comes in our minds when we think about Bollywood dancing is Govinda! The person behind Govinda’s flawless choreographies is the famous choreographer, Ganesh Acharya. From ‘Chikni Chameli’, ‘Malhari’ to ‘Dabangg’, you name a song and a signature step will pop in your mind; Ganesh Acharya has given us all this.
21 year-old Ganesh started his journey as a choreographer in Bollywood in 1992 and never looked back. Ganesh Acharya’s dancing is magic that has been mesmerizing us for the past two decades. Even after having so much of talent, time and again, people troll him for his weight.
The choreographer has left us shocked with his new look. Ganesh Acharya is no more an overweight choreographer, rather he is transforming himself into a handsome hunk.
The choreographer has lost 85 Kgs in the past one and a half years and says that there is much more to go. Here’s how he looks now after losing so much of weight.
He hasn’t done this because of all the cat calls. While talking about his inspiring transformation, Ganesh said,
Karna hi tha (I had to do this)! Ek soch thi ki (I had this determination that) I just have to do this. Logon ne Ganesh Acharya ko mota hi dekha hai (people have only seen the fat Ganesh Acharya), that’s why I wanted to change the image. I have lost almost 85kg now.
He confessed that he touched 200 Kgs after putting on 30-40 Kgs in 2015 for the movie ‘Hey Brother’. Ganesh’s massive weight made the journey difficult, but he didn’t give up. He was determined to lose weight and he finally did it!
It was tough for me. I have been working on my body for the past one-and-a-half years. I had even put on 30-40kg for my film Hey Bro (2015), and my weight had then touched 200kg. Ab vahi weight utaar raha hoon (I am shedding that weight now).
The choreographer wants to release a video of his weight loss journey to inspire the masses. On being asked about the difference he is feeling after shedding 85 Kgs so far, Acharya said,
I danced even when I had so much weight, but the difference between then and now is that the energy in my dance has doubled.
Kudos to your determination! Your journey will inspire masses.
